Thread: ESTP geek/nerd

  1. #1

    Default ESTP geek/nerd

    Ok so one thing ive noticed with this type online is that there never really see a description of them being geeky.
    Its usually active and sporty.

    After taking THE official test and reading the cognitive functions i indentified with estp as the closest to me. I struggled against entp vs estp but entp just doesnt fit. The cognitive functions were spot on, the online profile description was fairly accurate but

    The thing is im a huge geek.

    I read and write fantasy.
    I love jigsaw puzzles.
    I play a lot of video games and tabletop
    Mostly RPGs.
    I know the lore of lord of the ring characters,star wars etc.
    Im full of movie facts and trivia.
    I quote movies through out my day.
    I watch animal documentaries.
    I sing loud randomly ,play bass and listen to metal. I love cheesy power metal and black metal. I listen to it almost everyday. Which in general the metal scene doesnt seem to have many STPs.
    I am heavily into politics and love debating\arguing.
    I read comics and love superhero stuff in general.
    I have a horror/fantasy movie room.

    Side note- im not much of a partier anymore and prefer going to concerts or hanging with my family as ive gotten older.

    With that said i am active in the sense i work out 6 days a week.
    I hike,camp,swim,run and surf.
    I write horror reviews and top 10 lists

    Is it posdible to be a geeky nerdy metalhead estp?

    Also my ennegram is 8w7 possibly 7w8

    Of course, why wouldn't it be? ESTPs are also known for being versatile just like ENTPs, they might be inclined towards fast-paced physical activities because of their Se of course but it's totally possible and totally normal to be a geeky ESTP.

    I read fantasy novels for fun, am in love with Star Trek, almost exclusively watch horror movies and documentary series and have degrees in political science, sociology and spanish

    and I moderate a typology forum

    entirely possible

    Any type can get their geek on. I know aplha (macho) men who are secretly geeky/nerdy. They’re just too manly man to openly embrace it. I knew a model popular party girl who was a massive sci-fi nerd underneath. People wear many masks.

    I dont think being a geek/nerd is type related. ESTPs could for instance get into geek stuff as their Se craves the experiences and novelty and aux Ti will be curious on how things work and how things all logically fit together as well as tert Fe social connection.

    Difference between them:
    ENTP are enormous risk takers about everything you can imagine and theoretic. dom Ne
    ESTP are the most realistic type and insecure a lot more, calculating as well. Everything what they do is guided by impulses. inf Ni

    Yes! My ESTP friend shares all of these traits! His hobbies include the same exact things, but differently; he reads and writes history, he loves crosswords, he plays racing games, loves trivia, knows all characters of Homer's literature and ancient historical figures in europe, full of facts about both these things and planes, he prefers books but he doesn't quote much, watches historical and religious documentaries, he loves screaming haha and he's a huge metalhead as he can list off his favorite types of metal, he plays drums, he is heavily political and loves to debate and argue but his points tend to have some logical inconsistencies, he reads comics, he doesn't have a movie room, but his room is riddled with Greek wallpapers and maps, and it is almost a library of history and culture-based literature.

    Booyashaka! Sensors can be geeks too!
    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...
